The Little Traverse Historical Socity was established in 1905. In 1969, it was incorporated as a non- profit organization, "To preserve, advance and disseminate knowledge of the history of the Little Traverse Bay Area." To this end, and with the support of members and winter and summer residents, they acquired and restored the abandoned Chicago and West Michigan Railroad depot. Originally built in 1892 to accommodate the large influx of summer resorters, the depot now serves the area as the Little Traverse History Museum.

  • This is a charming local museum. I had been waiting to check it out as they are only open seasonally. The staff/volunteers were very welcoming and the local items were quite interesting. I enjoyed the Hemingway items as well. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Petoskey has a pretty nice historical museum. I teased them there was no mention of Hal Smith , a.k.a. Otis Campbell, from Andy Griffith. Hal a native to Petoskey. Hemingway was not.
